There are quite a few devices out there that can be rooted and do not have any custom ROM for them.  That's common, my own Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 fits into that category.

My 50% number is an estimate.  If you look at the EU and US, then non-Google Android devices are rare.  If you look at China, India, and other places, non-Google Androids might even be more common than Google-approved devices.  There are quite a few manufacturers that are making non-Google Android devices, here are three:
